I'm experimenting with using pattern weights instead of pins when cutting out clothing. I haven't made clothes in years but am feeling inspired to start making some things for myself. The weights seem really convenient and like they won't bunch up the fabric like pinning sometimes does.
These pattern weights are probably too big but I'll give a go and see how they work out. They were made with scrap fabric and stuffed with dried beans. If they don't I might use this tip and go buy large washers!
